For the last decade there has been ex soviet, Ukrainian crew’d, heading for Pakistan, for hire air-tanker, seized at an airport in rural Michigan.

From what I’ve read it took off in Texas and did damage to the airport, was headed to Pakistan, for an un-known job, denied entry to Canadian airspace, seized by the department of defense for being a “weapon of war” and the Ukrainian crew was sent home. I think its owned by a company out of Gibraltar, run by a company out of Delaware and used for military refueling and/or fighting forest fires.


If there isn’t movie about this plane in 30 years when something becomes declassified, ill be disappointed.
